Deep Sea Moments No.4

Salt domes in the Campeche-Sigsbee Salt Province form domes, hills and ridge structures on the sea floor in the southern Gulf of Mexico. The Tsanyao Yang knoll is one of these and is home to a rich fauna of chemosynthetic organisms at a water depth of 3,100 meters. Beard worms, which occur here with mussels, snails and many other animals, use the methane hydrate deposits and their conversion products as a basis for life with the help of symbiotic microbes. The white, massive-looking methane hydrates form a solid substance of methane and water that looks like ice and is only stable at high pressure and cold temperatures. The methane hydrates are formed by rising gas bubbles, whereby the bubble structure of the methane hydrates often remains intact and is inhabited by the so-called "ice worm". This species was previously only known from the northern Gulf of Mexico at shallower water depths and was discovered for the first time in the deep sea by MARUM researchers during the M114 meteor expedition.
